Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2029 after 13 days on 22 September 2029 at 16:29.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 367 of Meeus index or 1320 from Brown series.
Length of current 367 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 30 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2029. It is 40 minutes shorter than next lunation 368 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 14 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 55 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠331.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠348.5°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
11 days after point of apogee on 29 August 2029 at 04:45 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 September 2029 at 04:27 in ♎ Libra.

7 days after previous North standstill on 1 September 2029 at 23:36 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.127°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.021° in the next southern standstill on 14 September 2029 at 18:54 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 13 days on 22 September 2029 at 16:29 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
